Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires) all about?

The ignition cables, also known as “spark plug wires” are part of the ignition system. They transfer the spark from the distributor or ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the air-fuel mixture, starting the engine.

Over time, the cables can get weak and break down. This will make it harder for the spark to reach the engine cylinders, resulting in engine misfires. The car may not start at all. If one of the spark plugs has gone bad, the car will still start and run, but it will run poorly.

Keep in mind:

  • Ignition cable failure is often caused by other failing pieces in the ignition system; a mechanic should check for any other malfunctioning parts, and replace any parts of the system that don’t work.
  • Every time the ignition cables are replaced, the spark plugs should be inspected.
  • Leaking oil or coolant can cause ignition wire failure. If this is the case, the cause of the leak should be repaired or replaced, or else the new ignition wires will quickly be damaged as well.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car for codes.
  • Inspect ignition cables (look for white spots).
  • Ohm test on individual cables.
  • Remove and replace the cables if found faulty.
  • Inspect the spark plugs.
  • Clear the codes.

Our recommendation:

Ignition wires should be replaced at least every 60,000 miles, but whenever your car is serviced, it’s a good idea to have the entire ignition system inspected. Any time that you have spark plugs replaced, it’s a good idea to have the ignition wires replaced as well. If you notice that your engine is running poorly, you should schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Ignition Cable (Spark plug wires)?

  • Check Engine light is on.
  • Engine misfires.
  • Poor gas mileage.
  • Engine may shake (light vibration).

How important is this service?

The fuel in your automobile is ignited by a spark. This starts with the ignition coil, which transforms low voltage power into extremely high voltage. This high voltage is transferred through the ignition cables, and to the spark plug, where a spark is created that ignites the engine’s fuel, and powers the engine.

When one or more ignition cables fail, this voltage will not be transferred from the ignition coil to the spark plugs, and the fuel will not be ignited. Depending on how many of your ignition cables malfunction, your car will either run poorly, or won’t run at all.

I want to start out by saying that I really like this guy. He was prompt, courteous, personable, knowledgeable and took the time to listen and answer all my questions. He was very conscientious about keeping & leaving the area as clean as it was before he got there. Trans fluid service can be very messy, but you wouldn't know I had it done in my driveway! He took the time to go over my car and recommend some additional services I will be needing soon, and will certainly book Nicholas for them! He is also a really cool guy and enjoyed chatting with him while he was here. He's also a fellow vet! As a matter of fact, I had a friend at church that called me today asking for a recommendation and referred her to go on YourMechanic.com and request Nicholas.Thanks Nick!

Carlos is a excellent and goes up and beyond his work. My car literally could not more beacuse of the wheel studs were stripped and broken. I was out of a car for a month and was ready to say forget it. He assured me that my car wasn't in a worse shape then the shops made it out to be. All the extra things I need that the shops said I just had to have before touching my car. He came and fixed my car up like it was no big deal and saved me a ton on money. I guess he can relate that everyone works hard and dont crap out money for something so minor that the other places cost an arm and leg for. I will recommend his work to anyone I come across. I will be booking all my appointments with him for now on. Thanks. Carlos for saving my sanity and car 

Overall, Mark was on time & had a pleasant demeanor for the most part, but he brought his wife with him to both appointments. I thought that was a little unprofessional. Also, he didn't test the Battery/Alternator at first. He kept stateing that it was the Starter. I explained what was going on with my car & advised that I thought it was the Alternator. After we spoke about it several times of Mark stating that it was the Starter. Finally he tested the Battery and sure enough it wasn't holding charge. After installation of the Alternator my battery light came on before I could even make it out of my subdivision & I blatenly asked Mark did he run the vehicle to test the Alternator was sufficient. He replied that he Only ran a scan & no codes came up, but that wasn't true bc my battery light came on the first start up after he installed it. Not trying to be mean just felt that he was in a rush to get the job done without properly making sure the Alternator was a success. By testing the vehicle longer to ensure it was coding correctly & still not malfunctioning. Needless to say I had to have another mechanic come out today & come to find out the Alternator was testing as a bad Alternator & my brand new battery isn't holding charge anymore. Therefore, I have to have that one removed & a new one installed tomorrow.
